The Parasite project is funded by NWO-WOTRO, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research. WOTRO Science for Global Development is a research-granting organisation focusing on programming, funding and monitoring research on global issues. WOTRO envisions a world in which science continuously inspires development actors and in which scientists, in their turn, are inspired by development challenges.
